The Single Season

The first thing I did this morning was talk to Him. I cannot live a day without having him with me. Everywhere I go, I see Him. Today, we danced for hours and just spent time together. We talked about life, and the future, dreams and it felt really good to simply rest in his arms. It is one of my favorite places to be. Everything about Him consumes me! He is always on my mind. Obsession? -No. He is everything my life is about! I was made for him. He loves me unconditionally, and I love him.

I can still remember the day we met. I was five years old. I did not fall in love with him until I was about fourteen though, only to find that He had loved me forever and was waiting for me. Heart-set, I’ve been with him ever since. He’s so in love with me, and there are so many days I wonder why. Why would he love me? Why did he choose me?  Yet I often find myself in his arms. He knows everything about me and even knows me better than I know myself. He loved me when I felt unlovable. To him, I was always beautiful. Everything about him is amazing! He is the first one I talk to in the morning, and he is the last I talk to at night. Everyday I fall more and more in love with him.

It is a perfect romance that we share. Many girls dream of such companionship and love. They look seemingly everywhere to find it, but little do they know that what they are looking for has been so close to them all of this time. They just have to open their eyes to see it. This is the meaning of the single season — a love that is ever present and that never ends. It is about arms that hold you and never let you go. It is about one who will always be there for you, no matter what storms may come your way. It’s about everything that you were made to be and do. This season is about the romance we share with our beloved Savior.

What I have just illustrated above is what many of us dream of as the perfect romance. God is the lover of our souls. I know that often times we dream of doing these things with the man that we will one day marry – but I tell you that before you can know this love with a man, you must first have this love with God. How can one have this love if they do not know God’s love? The truth is – they can’t. I believe that one can’t truly experience love in it’s wholeness until they have experienced God, because God is love.

This romance that I am telling you of is beautiful and intimate and it is my prayer that during this season of singleness that you will learn to share in it too.

You might be wondering, What is the “single season?” 

 Simply put – the Single Season falling in love with Jesus and saving yourself for your future husband. But there is so much more to it, which I will cover later.

Blessings,

Brittany Lee Ketter

      Sorry. I should have been more clear on that. I was referring to the other blog posts on the main page that I would be writing. There will be more. I just got back from a missions trip to El Salvador so I will have something new up shortly.

    What a precious girl. You are so dearly and so deeply loved and cherished. I remember His arms around me when I was single… and even married, He still holds me when I am lonely or broken. So happy to see you are enjoying this season. There will be good days and hard days… but they are worth living and pushing through to feel His nearness. May you be richly blessed for holding Him so dear and allowing Him to be your Everything. I know your blog will bless others who are in this season with you. ❤

    Brittany: This brings tears to my eyes because I feel like you looked in my heart and saw my love for my Lord. I could have written this……even though I have been married for many years, Jesus will always be first place in my heart, which is the right place for him. He has blessed me with the most wonderful husband that is just right for me and He already has someone picked that is just right for you……all in his timing.

    Brittany, what an incredible woman you are! I’m so thrilled for you that you have come to know and Jesus so intimately already. Even though I accepted him at a young age, it took me so many years to understand the kind of love you have described here. I DID look for it everywhere and ended up broken-hearted and confused. Now, not only do I experience that intimate relationship with Jesus, but he’s blessed me with a wonderful husband as well. I wish I had understood the waiting as a young woman, but God is also a redeemer and gave me a do-over in life and love!! Sometimes, even at 52, I feel like a young woman of your age. May God continue to bless you with such wonderful grace, wisdom and love. You will have so much more to offer in a relationship because of your first love, Jesus!
